In the drop down, select the subject area for the content comparison in which you are interested. (Remember, to date only language arts and mathematics standards have been developed for the NCCSS.) Click the submit button. 1) On the Subject Area Content page, Locate the two sets of drop down boxes: On the left for Sample Selection, select CCSS Gr. 3 (or whichever grade you prefer). Leave Report By: box set at All Data. On the right for Sample Selection, select IL Frameworks Gr. 3 (or whichever grade you prefer). Leave Report By: box set at All Data. You may also compare NCCSS to IL Performance Descriptors, but this gets more complicated as you try to make a grade level match. 2) Click Update 3) At the bottom of the page, you will note a listing of Student Expectations – similar to Bloom’s Taxonomy of behaviors in the Cognitive Domain. These behaviors are cross-referenced with the two sets of standards producing a yellow>orange shading at the point of intersection. The key to the shading is located in the upper left hand corner of the page. So, looking at 3rd Grade language arts, in the area of Fluency, in the CCSS there is an expectation for instructional coverage in I. Memorization/Recall, II. Perform Procedures/ Explain, and III. Generate/Create/Demonstrate, while in the IL Assessment Frameworks there was no expectation for instructional coverage. As will be noted in all grade levels, there was little to no coverage in the IL Assessment Frameworks for Writing, Language Study, Speaking, and Listening while in the CCSS there is broad based coverage. 4) To get an even more detailed view within the Content Area subset, simply click on the descriptor (Fluency as an example). This will provide the instructional subsets and a comparison between the two sets of standards. This is called a “Fine Grain Chart”. 5) Comparisons for Illinois are not very favorable. There is a significant mismatch from what we have been expected to teach under the ILS and what we will be expected to teach under the NCCSS.
